About this listing
We offer two rooms in a self-contained guest wing plus a third room in the main house with own bathroom. A communal area in a spacious living room may be used for meals, socialising, or work. Located on Buziga hill in Kampala the house has a spectacular view of the lake, the city and my beautiful garden. We can accommodate up to 3 guests.
The bungalow sits on a balcony-like plot which I turned into a tropical garden. The atmosphere is truly special: You can watch the sun and the moon rise 'out of the lake' and truly African starry skies, or sunbathe in privacy and enjoy evenings by the fire. A global-local melange of safari-feel, artsy simplicity with attention to detail and functionality combined with first-rate and thoughtful management will make your stay a distinctive experience.
The residence is located in a quiet and safe area. The guest wing provides your own entrance, security is provided. You chose whether you like to rent one room or the whole guest-wing or the guest room in the main room with its own bathroom - or all of them!. We can provide breakfast and/or other homemade meals. We arrange the rooms to your liking and needs (number of beds, use of kitchen-corner, laundry, cleaning). You enjoy your private space in the garden.
We assist you with arrangements for transport, with info on how to get around in Kampala and what to do in Uganda. We can organize pick-up and drop off from/to the airport. Nearby the residence you find a variety of restaurants, hotels with swimming pools, a number of gyms and massage salons, a hospital, pharmacies, supermarkets and a great local market. The American Recreation Club (10 minutes drive from the house - ARA, see web) offers a temporary membership that allows you to use the restaurant, swimming pool, volleyball, yoga and Pilates classes, tennis and squash courts, and gym. If you come with a vehicle, we've got parking space.
The rent is negotiable depending on duration of stay, choice of room/s and whether you'd like to use fridge and/or kitchen etc, number of people and provisions required. We are also happy to consider your available budget. The general rate for the guest room in the main house per person/night is 40EUR/55USD plus fees for utilities, cleaning/laundry or other services. Breakfast, meals, drinks etc are separate (price-list provided).
We are dedicated to make your stay simply wonderful

Since 1999 I live in Uganda - the pearl of Africa. As a consultant I am lucky to spend time with gardening, tennis, yoga, voluntary work and artsy things of all sorts. Over time I got to know quite a bit about Uganda and East Africa and can assist you with a lot of info. Having done a lot of safaris in the region myself, I can help you to organize your own trip within Uganda and/or beyond.
My residence is quite a magical place. Looking out towards the lake we see the full moon rising glamorously and every morning I can watch the glorious sunrise emerging from the lake before all the birds start their chants and the superb tropical light makes every thing glow and shine in perfection .
I have hosted a number of young people who came over to get some work experience in Africa, some of them working with me in various projects. If you are interested, I might be able to get you connected to musicians, yoga classes, business and development partners, volunteers or photographers and 'safaristas'! Senior experts from Germany (see web, SES Germany) often stay here to prepare for their assignments up country or to relax before their return.
So: Come and enjoy! I am looking forward to meet you!
